The new 2018 Nissan Maxima

After the radical redesign in 2016 and the mild overhaul in 2017, that wasn’t much more than the implementation of Apple’s CarPlay, we don’t expect big changes for Nissan’s full-size sedan this year.

It is to be expected that the 2018 Nissan Maxima will stay with its sharp look that it took from its redesign which gives Nissan’s designer room to take care of the interior, where a lot of high-end materials will be forged into a glorious styling.

On the outside it is to be expected that the 2018 Nissan Maxima will stay close if not the same to its big upgrade in 2015 with a dominant V-shaped grille that gave it the current, aggressive styling on the front and the sleek lines on the side, going to the sporty back. The headlights get slimmer and will offer LED lighting.



On the roomy inside we see the about 8 inch HD touchscreen in the center console with slightly bigger AC vents than before above. Fabric is still the basic upholstery bit in terms of leather, it’s to be seen that new material will give it a nicer touch. As the 2018 Nissan Maxima presumably is to be expected to be build in Nissan / Mercedes and Renault new platform, it’s also likely that the already very roomy inside will offer even more space.



As the outside of the 2018 Nissan Maxima stays mostly the same, so the trim levels are expected to stay so too. With this in mind, the new Maxima will roll along with 18-inch alloy wheels as standard and keyless entry/ ignition, dual-zone climate control, automatic headlights, a 8-inch touchscreen, previous noted Apple CarPlay and a leather steering wheel. The options may vary depending on which trim level is chosen with 5 options such as S, SV, SR, SL and Platinum.

So far we can expect to see the current 3.5-liter V6 again with 300 hp and 261 pound-feet of torque again, which will be mated to the already known CVT automatic transmission that powers the front wheels. With this setup, the zero to 60 time should stay at 6.1 seconds while returning a 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. As Infiniti got a new 3.0 liter twin turbo V6, we might see a downgraded variation of this powerplant if we get lucky and see a NISMO trim. Hybrid is also an option as the emissions regulations don’t get lower in the future.
